A Sorry Western (Really!)
While this is an excellent TV print and shows the film to have been made with pretty good production values and sound, this film just doesn't gel. The acting is atrocious at best. While Yakima Canutt has some good stunt riding as does Mabel Strickland, the bulk of the story is a paste up of many patches and doesn't work. Cactus Mack and others uncredited would be doing better work in other films than this in the future. Elmer Clifton, who had a long directing career, was lucky he ever worked again after this one. Take a pass unless you are an absolute "western addict".
